Why The Democrats Should Fear the Tea Party (and it's not what you think)

by: Trent Derr - American Exceptionalism


You can tell that someone feels threatened by you when they publicly degrade and poke fun at you.    Given that standard, the Tea Party has been under the skin of Democrats from the day that it sprung to life a little more than 2 years ago.  As recent as the current budget battle, Harry Reid blames the Tea Party for not allowing Republicans to compromise on the Federal budget and perpetuate the excessive government spending.   Thanks Harry.  That’s the nicest thing you’ve said about the Tea Party in recent memory.

 

But why does the Democratic leadership actually fear the impact of the Tea Party?  Yes the Tea Party is on the other side of the ideological spectrum from the Far Left wing of the Democratic Party.  Clearly the Tea Party is fiscally conservative, believes in constitutionally limited government, and favors free market solutions.   However those positions are an accurate description of most conservative voters’ beliefs so that isn’t what is under the Democratic leaders’ skin.

 

The average Tea Party member is over 35 years old.    That fact aligns with the  typical  conservative voting demographic that  includes individuals over 35 years of age with a skewing of the population to those 55 and older.   So the Left’s concern isn’t caused by the fact that the Tea Party is a threat to the Left’s hold on older voters.   The older voting population has always been split between the left and the conservatives.   The older Americans with a taker mentality are liberal, and those with a builder mentality are conservative.

Barack Obama's phone and pen dictatorship

Posted by Jim Mullen on April 14, 2014 at 3:40pm 0 Comments

Barack Hussein Obama’s miraculous ascension to the presidency was the greatest marketing ploy ever conceived and implemented.  Mainstream media, Hollywood, and leftist intelligentsia conspired to hoist a community organizer with no experience in business, very few life skills, and insignificant qualifications, to the most powerful position on earth.

Careful manipulation and control by leftists and MS media was clear even in the primary election. Anyone using Obama’s full name was…

Exposing lies of Obamacare, New Democrats, and Obama

"If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?" --John Adams, the Novanglus, 1775

Lies are so much easier to believe than truth. Believing lies takes no effort in exercising one’s mind, summing up, or considering common sense. Truth requires educating one’s self, exertion of intellect,…

The Free-Falling of America the Beautiful

  Lately I've been wondering if I'm becoming a grumpy old man, complaining about how years ago... I believe that whenever your having serious doubts about issues of consequence you should double check your facts. When Obama was elected I was of the opinion "better a Dem. than a GOP" because the trouble our country is facing is so damned that I wouldn't wish the job of President on a fellow GOP. That's very troubling.

I just submitted my Letter to the Editor...as follows



This letter is in response to the editor’s article on 11-17-2013, entitled “Frustrated Newell takes on panel”.

“It would appear Parkersburg Mayor Bob Newell declared war last week on the Parkersburg Police Civil Service Commission…”

The article goes on to say Mayor Newell has been unsatisfied with both action and inaction by members of the commission. It also states that the commission has been "grossly dysfunctional”…
